The repercussions continue for Zac Guildford following his infamous night in the Cook Islands after a local triathlete accused him of harassment.
The 22-year-old is at the centre of a media storm after it emerged he staggered naked into a bar in the Cook Islands before assaulting two people, according to reports which emerged over the weekend. And now - on a night he claims he has "no clear recollection of" - Kelly Pick says that Guildford repeatedly drove past her on a scooter, while she was out running, making lewd comments in the process.
"His behaviour was totally inappropriate to the point where I felt unsafe," Pick wrote in a letter published in the Cook Islands News.
"He was obviously highly intoxicated and driving his rental scooter very dangerously and speeding like an idiot."
Pick told Radio New Zealand on Tuesday that she lodged a complaint to the Cook Islands police last Thursday but was unsure whether she would accept an apology from the winger. And the managing editor of Cook Islands News , John Woods, told Radio New Zealand's Morning Report that he will meet a member of the All Blacks management in an attempt to reconcile the damage that Guildford has done.
"He wants us to facilitate one-on-one meetings between Zac and the people that he has disrespected, so we're doing that," Woods said. "I'm not sure when exactly those individual meetings will take place. They will not include the media."
